there is no single answer. and quite frankly, we don't even know whether some of the things people think impact on this actually impact on it or not. and so i want you to know you have not been, quote, singled out for help. >> over the past two weeks, the vice president's team has met with dozens of organizations and groups from around the country from a wide range of interests. the law enforcement community, the medical community, the child advocacy at risk youth groups have been involved, domestic violence and prevention community was in there, also legal justice and service organizations, religious groups and organization, education leaders, the mental health community, gun owners and sportsmen were included, gun safety advocates, technology experts. the vice president is taking recommendations from all groups. there is common ground on this issue from all sides. for instance, even nra members overwhelmingly support changes to background check laws. 74% want everyone purchasing a gun permit to undergo a background check with no loopholes. this is from republicans pollster frank luntz, and wa
wouldn'ting at a place in a group of pennsylvania deer hunters. if you don't believe me go see the movie "deer hunter." it's a classic. so i'm confident his set of proposals on universal background checks, closing the gun show loophole, gun safety, and doing something about those high-capacity gun clips and whatever else he puts forward is going to be something reasonable hunters and second amendment people will find sensible. i'm not big on interest groups. i want to democratize the way we make laws in this country. the more people have a say in writing the law, the betert law. the fewer the people the worse the law. big corporations, for example, shouldn't write corporate tax law, and gun owners shouldn't be the only people involved in gun law. anybody can get shot by a gun, killed by a gun, and they all ought to have a say. and, that ladies and gentlemen, as joe biden would say, includes all of us. all of us should make gun law, not just the gun people. so let's go at it. and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue
dealt with at once. deal with the weapons that you think you need to deal with. but if you don't deal with mental health issues, you don't deal with substance abuse issues, and you don't deal with violence in the video games in the media, if you don't deal with all of it, you're not going to eliminate the problem, or even reduce the problem, in my view. >> chris christie was rightly praised for his leadership in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. no doubt about it, he stood up to his party for their actions and how they didn't do what they were supposed to do early on to get relief from congress. but now is the time for real leadership, passing the buck on to the entertainment industry, governor, is nothing but a cop-out. it's a great way to divert attention from a politically delicate situation and difficult position. >> i don't let games like call of duty in my house for ps3 and xbox. that's a decision mary pat and i have made. you cannot tell me sitting in the basement for hours playing call of duty and killing people over and over and over again does not desensitize that child to t
so let's go at it. and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue because the other side is still into keeping theirs. you know, with their cold dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. we live in a country where a teacher can have a gun in a classroom and not tell the parents about it? we're going to do something about it. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> teachers can carry a firearm. a parent doesn't have to know about it. >> armed teachers. it's already legal in some states. and the numbers could start growing. tonight we're getting the parents' perspective on guns in the classroom. >>> the nra refuses any discussion on gun laws. >> it doesn't mean it's the end of the discussion. but the public wants us to act. >> the family of a colorado shooting victim stands up for reform. >>> and mc rove drops some truth. >> doing the dance, the karl rove dance. the
don't think the federal government has any business having a list of law abiding citizens who choose to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. >> but for vice president joe biden, an assault weapons ban is just the beginning. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today president obama nominated a uniquely qualified candidate to be secretary of defense. former senator chuck hagel, republican out of nebraska, puts country over party, and is a true independent, an independent thinker who will speak his mind. maybe that's why the republicans are crying foul. president obama nominated senator hagel despite early attempts by hagel critics to sideline the nomination. the president praised hagel for his impressive credentials. >> he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. as a young private and then a sergeant, he served with honor alongside his own brother. when chuck was hit by shrapnel, his brother saved him. when his brother was injured by a mine, chuck risked his life to pull him to safety. >> and there is much more. h
. >> and the parents are dropping their little kids off to a school, and they don't know that there is a firearm in the classroom. do you think they have a right to know? >> not necessarily. not necessarily. >> why? >> because i think that firearms are -- what we do know is that the bad guys come into schools. what we don't know -- i mean, we're making lots of guesses about what could happen if. and those things haven't happened. like i said, we've been able to carry them for 12 years here in utah. and i have not heard them. and they would be on the news if those things happened. >> she is torn by the culture of guns in this country. she wants to do the right thing. i don't believe caroline kane is an unreasonable person. and i'm glad she spoke her mind on this program. but it is also reasonable to be concerned if your child's teacher is carrying a loaded gun and if you don't know about it. there is a major disconnect in america between the two sides of the discussion. we can't achieve solutions until we figure out how to bridge the gap. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. t
to carry. i personal hi don't think there is any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets, and particularly around the schools in america. i believe that we've got to take a serious look. i understand everybody's desire to have whatever they want. but we've got to protect our children. we've got to protect our police. we've got to protect our population. >> compare mcchrystal's comments from those from the other side. >> 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. it doesn't matter how many lems you get out there on the street, begging for them to have their guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? >> the lines are being drawn. members of the right wing fringe are using fear and fantasy to end the debate over gun legislation. a caller to my radio show this afternoon sounded more sensible. this gentleman is a gunowner and hunter from kansas, the middle of the country. >> i am appalled as a gunowner and an ethical sportsman, i am appalled by the level of gun violence in this country. gunowners ought to be leading the charge to end this gun vi
